Re: Civil Unrest In Middle Eastern Arab States

Did any of you really bother to check up on EU military statistics before commenting on the EU's inability to perform a military action? Just because they're unwilling and the EU is about as effective as a spongue against a flood does not mean the combined military strength is not enough. I think i...

Re: Civil Unrest In Middle Eastern Arab States

Why do they need carriers to get to Libya? There are bases in Sicily, Malta, and Southern Italy that are 30 minutes away by air. Do any of those nations own air tankers? That was the major problem when the EU wanted to invade Kosovo - they didn't have the airlift to supply the troops they could get...

Re: The Sky is Falling! My Account of Cat 4 Cyclone Yasi, so

Landfall is expected at 2200hrs local time, which is approximately 10 1/2 hours from now (Midday, Zulu time). Which goes to show my crappy time conversion calculation. :shock: But Antipodean, just wondering; is your house sturdy enough to survive cat 3~5 winds? To my knowledge most Australian house...

Sticky for future reference; by my calculation (which might not be accurate :P) it should be about 90 minutes until landfall.

Good luck Antipodean!
